: tomorrow that will be billy ray cyrus. brian: really? steve: hannah montana's dad is going to be on the program. meanwhile, a headline that says "firms with obama ties profit from the health push." it talks about how the health care overhaul is a financial windfall to a couple of democrat consulting firms closely connected to the president and a couple of his top advisors. $24 million worth of ads are being bought and put on tv. the two firms hired, one is gmmb which worked for barack obama during the 2008 campaign, and also akpd. the a stands for axelrod started by david axelrod. of course, he has separated himself from the company. but there are some who are going, now, wait a minute, this seems a little too cozy. the white house denies that mr. axlerod is making any money from it. gretchen: they do still owe him # million from the stock sale. they're going to be making those payments over the next couple of years. but interestingly enough, at that firm that he created, his son still works there. and no surprise that the two top advisors to obama, these are their former j

or triple in price. >> i just moved here from montana and we're not even used to having to pay anything to park. >> reporter: $0.50 at a parking meter, not something he is accustomed to. but he is adjust at charm city. sometimes that means adjusting your wallet. based on proposed legislation, street parking could go up to $3 an hour. >> that is crazy. >> reporter: rate increases would affect most of downtown including the inner harbor. meter parking would go from $1 an hour to $2 an hour, with approval to go to $3 an hour in the mown vernon and fells point area. >> i think that is a rip off. if it's $3 an hour. you should park at one of these parking places, at least they watch your vehicle. >> it's about good parking management, really. >> reporter: it' they claim is a way to stop cheap street parking, you know people who feed the short-term parking meters and park all day long; the consequence? >> it can kill business if people don't find a convenient place to find in front of businesses. those who are parking all day long, should be parking in off street garages. >> reporter: th
